One of the coolest track toys you can buy—no joke—is an old NASCAR racer. Not only are they built like tanks and sound glorious, but they also make for hilarious situations like this, where a Toyota Tundra race truck chases down a Ferrari 458.
YouTuber DailyDrivenExotics’ Liberty Walk Ferrari 458 GTR got wrecked during Monterey Car Week last year. Instead of waiting around for it to be completely fixed, they took it out for a rip missing its doors and most of its front end. It runs. It drives. There’s just enough parts back on to make it work. Why not?
Ryan Tuerck’s Ferrari 458-powered Toyota GT86 is a mad and shrieking, tire-shredding, donut-making, smoke-spewing Frankenstein build. And now he’s taking it to the track for some synchronized dancing.
It’s always nice when the pretty car photos outweigh the carnage and wrecks on the internet, so here’s a peaceful, not-wrecked Ferrari to make up for the post on the Ferrari 488 GTB that slammed into a barbershop from earlier today.
Ryan Tuerck fired up his project car to end all project cars tonight: a Toyota GT86 with a Ferrari 458 engine mounted up front. With a ton of custom parts and clever modifications making it work, we couldn’t wait to hear this one, either. Fortunately, the wait is over. Listen to the glorious noise.
According to the latest Autocar Confidential, the team who developed the new NSX over at Acura purchased a Ferrari 458 for comparison tests—and then completely destroyed the car to see how it was built when they were done.
A beautiful, special Ferrari 458 Speciale minding its own business was horrifyingly mutilated at Katie’s Cars & Coffee in Great Falls, Virginia this morning when a Mercedes 380 SL parallel parked on the face of the $300,000 supercar. Children were watching!
Earlier this month, we saw a Ferrari 458 engine mounted in the nose of a Toyota GT86. We had no idea how it was supposed to work. But now we have a first look at the build process, like how it will have intakes behind the front wheels.
Wait, how is that intake going to work?
If there’s anyone who knows his way around a fast Ferrari, it’s Jeff Segal. So, because it’s the week of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, we’ve got him with us live from Circuit de la Sarthe. What’s that like? Do the teams bring extra-strong espresso? Ask anything you want right now!
The Ferrari 458 Speciale is destined to become a great collector’s car, but for one “enthusiastic British owner,” it just wasn’t enough.
Dreary, rainy weather isn’t always bad, especially when hundreds of Italian horses decide to pose in it. Use it as a metaphor for your week ahead—sure, Monday morning is a dreary time, but there’s always something beautiful waiting in the rain. (That was overly poetic, but hey. It’s fine.)
Here’s a video that’s so insane, it’s been compared to driving Forza on Easy mode with all the assists on. It doesn’t look real, but it’s what happened when Jono Lester restarted in 32nd position at the Australian GT Championship’s first race of the 2015 Clipsal 500 weekend. Watch this, and I’ll even offer to help…
For the average person, the easiest way to track a supercar is through a “supercar experience”-type program. Many of these let you loose on a real track in a supercar for a set number of laps. I tried out Xtreme Xperience’s Ferrari 458, and I’m not sure I wanted to let them have it back.
Above read claim has nothing to do with the massive Jalopnik stickers involved. Nope, not a thing.
Who needs a fancy readout of G-forces when the obvious solution is staring you right in the face every time you browse the Arts & Crafts section of the store? Googly eyes are the most genius way to illustrate how hard your car is trying to pull your body one way or the other: fact.
Oh, bless your 458-racing hearts. Is it just me, or is it all too often a Ferrari's fault when things go wrong? They're the Camry of the motorsports world like that. I spotted a Ferrari 458 getting flat-towed while I was waiting for the fireworks to start with damage that looks like it hurt. Here's how that happened.
A massive crash took Mark Webber in the number 20 Porsche out of the race in the last hour of the World Endurance Championship's 6 Hours of São Paulo. The Porsche 919 collided with Matteo Cressoni in the number 90 Ferrari 458 of 8 Star Motorsports, then hit the wall.
Everyone always credits the driver with a great race, but racing is far more of a team sport than most people think. Races wouldn't happen without the support crews standing by to prepare the cars and quickly solve any problems that arise.
